Amherst College Creative Writing Virtual Residency February 2021

Join us for a virtual independent residency in creative writing. Modeled on writers’ and artists’ colonies like MacDowell, Yaddo and the Provincetown Fine Arts Workshop, this program offers you the opportunity to devote attention to your fiction, poetry, dramatic writing or creative nonfiction in a supportive environment. Participants will have opportunities for collaborative structured writing and the freedom to choose between social and independent writing each day. Participants are welcome to work on either new or existing projects. And for participants seeking guidance, instruction or simply feedback on their work, we'll offer one-on-one mentoring sessions with program leaders. At the end of the program, we'll come together for a virtual community reading, during which we'll share work produced during the residency. We will meet via Zoom and Google docs from 1pm to 4pm (EST) on February 3rd-5th and February 8th and 9th. The residency is led by writing center associates Roy Andrews and Emily Merriman.
